Joined by first-round receiver

St. Brown is being joined by 2022 first-round draft pick Jameson Williams within the Lions' receiving corps, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

After trying to get by with aging veterans in Tyrell Williams and Breshad Perriman last year, Detroit enters the 2022 campaign with a significant upgrade at outside receiver in the form of Jameson Williams and a 25-year-old second-rounder (2018) in DJ Chark. Considering Chark owns an impressive 4.34 40 time and still might be markedly slower than Jameson Williams (who was unable to participate in the 40 this offseason), St. Brown stands to benefit from these speedy additions, which likely will give St. Brown more room to work in the middle of the field. The main concern is how St. Brown's volume will be affected after he averaged 11.2 targets per game over the final six contests of the 2021 season.
